, feinstein went a step too far for the nra, which responded in a statement "it's disappointing but not surprising that she is once again focused on curtailing the constitution instead of prosecuting criminals or fixing our broken mental health system. conservative columnist michelle malkin doubled down in the way only she can. >> you talk about the root of this problem, the disrespect that the people on the left have for the constitution, that that's at the core of this, that it's about freedom versus tyranny. >> vice president joe biden yesterday countered with that rare and prized thing, logic. >> just as you don't have an individual right to go out and buy an f-15 if you are a billionaire with ordinance on it, just like you don't have a right to go buy an m-1 tank, just like you don't have a right to buy an automatic weapon, those judgments have been made that there are no societial -- reasonable societial justification or constitutional justification for owning that. >> right now the vice president is in virginia attend aing round table discussion on gun violence with homel

but the nra says not so fast. >>> a new stomach bug is called the ferrari of viruses. it's fast-mong, highly contagious and u.s. health officials say it's taking over the u.s. all that, and manti te'o's bizarre explanation. destruction for safety's sake. we'll take you to the place where the sun is are warm, the wind is steady and life is good. "early today" right now. >> announcer: this is "early today" for friday, january 25th, 2013. >>> good morning. i'm richard lui. bitterly cold arctic air is gripping parts of the nation this morning for a third straight day. as you can see single digit temperatures are causing rivers to freeze in the boston area. and in methuen, massachusetts, amazing pictures show the spicket rivers falls frozen solid. here in new york, you can see the famous fountain in bryant park is covered in ice. bill karins will have much more on the deep freeze. >>> in the aftermath of the shootings in newtown, connecticut a new bill to propose the bill for assault weapons it be proposed. dianne feinstein names a bill that includes 150 firearms and semiautomatic rifles and pist
and galvanizing support to overcome the nra and other entrenched interests, which no doubt, no question will fight them, make no mistake, there will be a fight. but as you said, the centerpiece really is a comprehensive program that has to include the background checks. i propose background checks on ammunition purchases as well as extended background checks on firearms purchases so as to cover that 40% of private sales and gun show sales that are not now covered and a comprehensive program of preventing gun violence has support from the majority of americans. we need to make that support focused on washington, d.c. so our congressional representativ representatives, whether in the senate or the house, cannot escape the brunt of that opinion. >> senator murphy, let me turn to you for a moment. you represented newtown as newtown's congressman. now as senator you represent the entire state of connecticut as their senator. connecticut is a small state, but it is a diverse state. it is both diverse in terms of urban and rural areas. it's diverse in terms of its population. and in terms of its politica
with a "f" from the nra. what? how? who? how are they doing this? >> best example is bill nelson who ran for the first time in 2000 when gun control supposedly cost al gore the presidency and won the state by five points and most importantly, he was winning in pensacola and -- not pence ka lo but the florida panhandle. he was carrying a place like liberty county which voted for romney by 40 points in november. and these are areas that are only separated from alabama by an artificial border and he didn't just have a "f" rating from the nra. >> nate, "the washington post" polled republicans before the president announced his gun control package. and there were a lot of people who are very much in favor of the things the president would end up proposing. 89% of republicans in favor of background checks. 61% in favor of a federal database of gun sales. 59% in favor of a ban on high capacity magazines. eastbound 45% in favor of a ban on assault weapons, a large number given we're talking about republicans. so why is it that we have so much support, independent support and democratic support i
: the assault weapons ban expired almost a decade ago and tonight a spokesman for the nra says there is no need to renew it because gun bans do not work. >>> shannon bream live in d.c what would this new bill do exactly. >> it would ban the sale, manufacture, transfer and importation of 157 specific guns, along with a broader group of other guns that would meet a new lower threshold for classifying a firearm as an assault weapon. there would be numerous bans on various high capacity magazines and beefed up background checks on the sale and transfer of all assault weapons. vice president joe biden said today assault weapons aren't necessary for personal protection. >> the shotgun will keep you a lot safer. a double barrel shotgun than the assault weapon in somebody's hands, you know it's hard tore use an assault weapon to hit something that is a shotgun. okay? >> by the way, the new classification would include a number of rifles, shotguns, and hand guns as well. >> shepard: i mentioned the nra is all over this? >> here is reaction from the group today saying this, senator feinstein has been tr
, was there any meaningful challenge to it? >> there wasn't because that was a '94 and the nra at the time is said to have believed they did not have a particularly friendly make-up on the supreme court. >> bill: so the nra didn't challenge it. >> no, 'cause they didn't want gun rights being adjudicated under that court. the court looks very different now, more right leaning than then. and number two, this ban that she has proposed is much more broad than the one that was put in place back in 1994. we're still getting our first look at it. but it looks like, among other things, she wants to ban hand guns that have detachable magazines. >> bill: clips. >> and one characteristic of a military weapon. the ban in '94, you had to have two or more characteristics. this passed this new york state and there have been suggestions that the new york state prohibition is going to be found unconstitutional because it comes too close to taking hand guns out of millions of americans. >> bill: you fully expect this to go to the supreme court? >> i think the nra is going to look at this much differently. but i don
from the nra, saying things like it is nonsense. back ground checks, that seems to be the spot where there is the most likely opportunity. >> lawmakers say look, if the senate can get through a bill that is something that can work. the nra is in a marketplace. part of the reason they satisfy such an extreme position. there are other groups competing for the same money. >> then gun owners of america will fill in the marketplace and not the nra. >> joy reid gets tonight's last word. >> the jackals attack hillary. let's play "hardball." >> good evening, i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with this. is this the day of the jackals? is this the day that the right decided to go all out attacking hillary clinton? who said this person is fair game? that she's the new valerie wilson, the new target of all their angry venom and fulminating. where do they decide this stuff? hillary clinton is the most popular woman in the world right now. democrats love her, a lot of republicans like her. she's not running for anything, certainly not now. she's retiring from a tough job. people agree
account that the nra has always outspend the gun control. now we have michael bloomberg involved and now we have steve jobs' widow happening out with gabby giffords pac. finally the gun control side has money. >> the risk of congressional inaction -- just one moment -- >> every day people see us on this show, martin, and they say how wonderful it is that the martin bashir show is focusing on this issue. toure's point is exactly right. if you care about this issue, tell us you care about it by writing a check to one of the great organizations, the mayors group, there's about half a dozen groups that are doing important work. i intend to write a check for them and everybody watching who is interested and concerned about protecting our children and protecting your families and protecting your communities, you have to support these organizations that are doing important work. >> and your original point is absolutely right. the martin bashir point is wonderful. >> thank you. >> yes. >> but the risk of congressional action has prompted some mayors to start taking action. michael nutter of phil
of the nra and the money that they contribute to members and the domination by republicans on the house side who will not let it get to the floor? >> well, listen, those are all things that are certainly out there, and anybody that ever underestimates the nra don't kid yourself. they are extremely powerful. what i'm saying is newtown did change because the american people have responded to it overwhelmingly. here we are 47 days after the shooting, and we're still talking about it. that's how deeply it's affected everybody. it's going to be up to the american people to be very honest with you on where we go. saturday there's going to be the million moms walking against gun violence across the country. we have more groups than we've ever seen before stepping up and saying how can we help? it's really a matter of organizing and even in the white house getting out there almost like a campaign and educating the american people on really telling them what we're trying to do, not talking away the rights of someone to own a gun. this past week we had several hearings, and we had gun owners. we had h

[audio not understandable] >>> it said no assault weapons and angry vendors pulled out by the hundreds and the largest sports and outdoor show in the country is on hold. charley has more on why the eastern sports and outdoor show has been postponed and it's a whirlwind for people. >> sight start -- it started a week ago the day before the president announced his plan to increase control and the call for the assault weapons ban. reid exhibitions said they wouldn't i a lou the sale -- allow the sale or display of technical weapons. the show is up i-83 and slated to start next saturday. it's a huge event drawing thousands of people from all along the east coast including here in baltimore. and includes 1200 vendors from outfitters to hunting and fishing and camping suppliers. when the announcement was made 300 vendors pulled out including big names like the nra. a facebook page calling for the boycott started and gained 19,000 fans compared to the facebook page which had less
, in our workplaces, in our movie theaters. enough is enough. we can win this. >> all right. the nra, however, says not so fast saying in a statement this afternoon quote senator feinstein has been trying to ban guns from law-abiding citizens for decades. they add the american people know gun bans do not work and we are confident congress will reject senator dianne feinstein's wrong-headed approach. right here we'll debate. let's go to our cnbc contributor and author of "divider in chief" and kay bailey hudson. i was reading former new york police chief bill braddon who thinks the gun ban is crazy. there's 350 million firearms out there, including assault weapons. you think this feinstein approach has a chance? >> well, i think that harry reid gave you the signal that it's going to be very difficult because he said i'm not bringing up anything in the senate that isn't going pass in the house. because he has vulnerable democrats who are up for election in 2014 that are in states that value their guns, and i think that it's going to be very difficult. and i also think republicans are l
, the other ads that the nra ran that were offensive about the president's children, all these ads seem to be problematic. >> i find that ad really infuriating for this reason. we have some deep, deep problems that drive crime and violence in this society. for example, 1% of u.s. adults are behind bars. and that, a lot of scholars believe, has actually exacerbated the crime problem. it actually drains communities of their life blood and causes huge, huge problems. dianne feinstein has been a big advocate of three strikes laws, lock away the key, throw them in jail, you know, throw away the key kind of approaches that have actually had devastating effects on a lot of communities that are the biggest victims of criminal violence. and then we get an assault weapons ban, that is basically a cosmetic approach. the reason you said 2 to 8%, is that we don't even know what really counts as an assault weapon. they're literally naming guns. guess what, i take off this one stock, this foldable stock, it's not an assault weapon anymore. this is nonsense legislation that is purely symbolic, that is
the opposition's base, it's fueling the n.r.a. with new funding, new membership, why do the democrats want to take this on? >> well, in part because they do want to actually see action, but what you saw with senator feinstein acknowledging what an uphill battle it is, you start to wonder, the administration's own push with some executive action, with a lot of things that they can do behind the scenes, they're doing this two-fold and congress is acting outside of what the administration wishes. so it's two real tracks and it's no accident the vice president is going to virginia tomorrow to take this show on the road a little bit with a round table discussion, he's going to have different lawmakers there. this is the site -- the state where virginia tech happened, the school shooting there, very tragic, and he's trying to sort of capitalize on a lot of that energy the same way they're doing on newtown to motivate people to action. from a political perspective in congress democrats raised pacs, as well. gabrielle giffords aims to raise $20 million for the 2014 midterm elections. the n.r.a. is
. >> and we see joe mansion from the nra, saying li ining things is chon sense. back ground checks, that seems to be the spot where there is the most likely opportunity. >> lawmakers say look, if the senate can get through a bill that is something that can work. the nra is in a marketplace. part of the reason they satisfy such an extreme position. there are other groups competing for the same money. >> then gun owners of america will fill in the marketplace and not the nra. >> joy evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. now is the time for america to get laser focused on how the republicans are trying to steal the next election. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> i think the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout, especially in urban areas. >> forget policy. if you can't win it, just go ahead and rig it. the gop moves to steal elections. first stop? virginia. david corn and charnelle herring tell us if the dirty move could work. the right still can't handle hillary. >> she obviously has an enduring media. >> so the king of the sunday shows bites
could become law. democratic senator joe manchin of west virginia, himself an nra supporter, told a local radio program he was working on a new bill to toughen background checks for most gun buyers. >> if you're going to be a gun owner, you should have a background and be able to pass a background check to be able to get that. with exceptions. the exceptions are their families immediate family member some sporting events. >> john: before we crack some jokes about what those sporting events might be, let's all recall this comment former president bill clinton made about gun owners last saturday. when he said do not patronize the passionate supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them. very good advice for gun control advocates. for more on the gun control debate, i'm very pleased to be joined by the very reverend gary hall, dean of washington cathedral who participated today in senator feinstein's news conference. dean welcome and good evening. thank you for coming on "viewpoint." >> it is a real pleasure to be here. >> john: thank you sir. i understand you got so
